We recently spent 2 nights with Jilly and Michael when we came up from Kent to share my wife's brother's 60th birthday with him. We were lucky enough to find room at Rowan House. Michael's breakfasts loaded us up for the day, and Jilly's conversation made us feel like old friends. Barnack is a lovely village and RH is absolutely... More

My wife and I booked into this lovely Bed and Breakfast after having checked reviews through Trip Advisor and we feel so glad we did. The couple who run the house, Jilly and Michael, are an absolute delight. We truly wanted for nothing, with wonderfully cooked food and our hosts were incredibly helpful in every respect.

If I had written a specification for a B&B experience I would not have aspired to such a high level of quality that Jilly and Michael delivered this past week end. My stay felt like a combination of the best parts of house party and a visit to see some long dear friends. A truly relaxing experience with views from... More

Last January I gave myself a wonderful treat by travelling for an entire month throughout the gorgeous East Midlands and among the goals I pined for achieving Stamford represented in all likelihood one of the highlights of my overall sojourn in the glorious British land. The main reason of such a successful achievement lies doubtlessly in the lodge I chose... More

We were contemplating staying at Rowan House, but after reading the 112 reviews about how friendly the dogs were, we have decided to give somewhere else a try, preferably where no dogs are in residence, , sorry!!!

Hello Mike, and thanks for giving us a 5 star review even without staying ! Yes, we do have 2 very friendly and well behaved dogs, and most of our guests are quite happy to have them around. However, should someone express a preference for the dogs to be kept away during breakfast, or when in our public areas, we... More

Goodness, what a pleasant surprise to stay at Rowan House. Normally, when I travel to Stamford, I'll stay in one of the popular and well advertised hotels and they're perfectly acceptable, but after a stay at Rowan House I'm an ardent fan. On arrival I received a warm welcome, the offer of a cup of tea after a long drive... More

We stayed with Michael and Jilly for 3 excellent nights. We had to leave early two mornings, and a breakfast was provided for us in our own kitchen area, which suited us very well. On the third morning we enjoyed a delicious breakfast before heading home. Jilly and Michael are wonderful hosts, nothing is too much for them and they... More

I booked 4 nights B & B for my father over the Christmas period. This place is an absolute gem! The owners, Jilly and Michael are very friendly and made my father feel really welcome. My father luxuriated in a delightful suite of four rooms which were all impeccably furnished and comfortable. The bedroom and living room look out onto... More

We stayed with the whole Family in Rowan House and immediatly felt like being at home and part of the family. Jilly&Michael are great hosts and they have a lot to tell about the area and UK but they are also interested to learn about their guests. We will definetly come back!

I'm just back from spending last night at Rowan House, where I was wonderfully looked after by Jilly & Michael and their dogs, Toby & Pepe. What made my trip very special was that my 8 month old golden labrador was warmly welcomed and fussed over by all, too! I had googled a dog-friendly B&B in the area, as I... More
